10 Dec Do vets and law enforcement personnel who watch (alleged) criminals get jury trial rights, get them?
Nope, not in a California family or juvenile dependency court case. Only Texas family and juvenile dependency courts grant parents jury trial rights before legal rights to their children can be taken from them.
Yes, veterans and law enforcement personnel have put their lives on the line to secure our freedoms from unwarranted governmental interference (UGI). What are some of these freedoms we enjoy? Voting rights, First Amendment rights, and jury trial rights if you are brought into a criminal court. Law enforcement personnel are often brought into a jury trial as a witness against a criminal defendant. However, if they are brought into a family or juvenile court, as a parent, they aren’t afforded their own jury trial rights.
Family and juvenile dependency courts have taken (far too often, without warrant) the most important freedom that a veteran parent, or law enforcement parent arguably has, the freedom to care, control and have companionship with their minor child(ren). Even though this freedom is “liberty protected” interest which is the highest constitutional protection a united state’s citizen can have, #PreventUGI
